Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau, a French plastic surgeon, pioneered the use of endoscopy cameras during surgery. His videos show what fascia looks like and how it behaves. This short video, which I read about in ABMP’s Massage & Bodywork magazine, demonstrates how the fibers stretch and move.
I am intrigued by this view of what’s under the skin. I have been considering how hands-on work like Structural Integration may affect the energy and tension in the fascia. In the article, Dr. Guimberteau says:
It is clear that manipulation of the skin and underlying tissue influences a cell’s shape and position, and the mobility of the fibrillar system responsible for our architecture … Any gesture of manual therapy has an impact at the cellular level.
